Not PE related, but posted here.Itching

Excuse me for not posting a PE related question. This probably belongs in the men’s health section, but I didn’t think I could post there yet.so it’s here.

It’s pretty disgusting, so read on if you want..

I’ve got a terribly bad itch between my legs. It’s red, itches, and when dry or moist, lots of skin flakes off when I itch the area. At first it was between my legs, but now the area that itches and is red covers everywhere from the anus region, reaching through to a small strip on the scrotum, as well as the base of the penis/pubic region.

I’ve been to the doctor already, and told him I tried using a Jock-itch cream, as well as Hydrocortisone to control the itching. But it had not worked. He instead prescribed me a stronger anti-itch steroid cream. It has not helped at all, and has not taken care of the redness either, it did burn like someone was taking a blow torch to my groin. I’m going to see him again, and ask him to refer me to a dermatologist. He thinks it’s a simple matter of psoriasis, itching and flaking of the skin (I think that’s what it is called.).

In the mean time, I was wondering if any of you have some experience in what I have. I don’t think it’s a simple matter of a skin disorder because recently my GF has been getting itchy too.

Any insight or information would GREATLY be appreciated. Currently, I am giving anti-fungal cream another shot, this time trying another active ingredient. Doesn’t seem to be working though =(

A simple matter of psoriasis? I don’t think I would call an incurable skin disorder a simple matter.

Keep using your anti-fungal cream. I would try Lamisil if you haven’t already.

In addition, apply Gold Bond Medicated powder or the equivalent after your shower and whenever things feel damp. If it is fungus related, you want to keep the area as dry as possible.

Thanks for the info.

I’m beginning to think that my Doc doesn’t really care about me too much. I was thinking what does an anti-itch cream do besides stop the itching.it gets me to stop complaining to him, that’s what!

Hmmm.I will give Lamisil a try. Right now the active ingredient I’m using is Butenifine Hydrochloride..

Damn, I hope this goes away.it’s such a burden.

Interesting. That sounds just like a problem I’ve been having. The only thing I’ve tried though is anti-cortizone. I’ll try Lamisil tonight too. I went to the doctor for an unrelated matter a few months ago and he prescribed me 25mg Hydroxyz HCL for itching and after taking that for about a week, it seemed like that area had cleared up some as far as the rash. But the meds ran out I guess before it knocked it completely out of my system so it’s back again. You might ask your Dr. about those pills. Maybe it’ll help you. Either way please keep this thread updated about different stuff that you’ve tried and maybe one day someone will find something that helps them. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply. I didn’t think it was Psoriasis either.damn doctor. First thing to do now is find a new doctor, and get another opinion.

I was reading up more on fungal conditions, at the very LEAST, when I told my doctor that my GF had it also, he should have checked for STDs and taken a sample of my flakes/hair and maybe even a skin sample..

Just FYI for anyone else who ends up having to see a doctor.

Do you do your own laundry? I had a bad rash one time between my legs and my package, where there was usually some sweating/moisture throughout the day. Doctor prescribed me some creams but it kept coming back. I finally realized I was using some cheap detergent that was causing the problems. Changed soaps and it eventually went away.

Hmm interesting skis. My wife does the laundry and we use cheap detergent too and before we were married all my laundry was done by dollar store detergent. Just curious but what kind are you suing now? I’ll try that and see what happens.

Tnatna I don’t believe this is psoriasis it sounds more like dermatitis or eczema

to me go to the doctor and ask him for some steroid cream

I had a problem with eczema on parts of my scrotum. It got really bad for a while as the skin got all hard and cracked then it flaked off and got inflamed and when I scratched really hard, I started getting bumps and stuff. I couldn’t figure out what caused it for a long time. I used lotion like crazy. Lotion didn’t help. The skin still got super dry and flakey even if I applied it often. The hydrocortizone cream helped somewhat, but still not enough. It was really bugging me until I really sat down and thought about it, did a little research. I figured it was probably eczema from the description. Since I didn’t have this problem for that long, I figured SOMETHING had to have caused it. The only thing that I could think of was my body wash since I started using body wash instead of soap a little while back.

So I started using soap again and the problem heavily died down.

It’s kind of strange that your gf is getting it too though. The way I figure it… it’s either both of you are having a reaction to something new (soap? detergent? lube? latex allergy?) or you guys might have some kind of fungal infection…

Wow, ndk, you are so nobel, sacrificing yourselp as a guinea pig for the good of the larger public.

Your chivalry is indeed admirable!

While I have never gotten a rash, I have a tendency to be sensitive to the soap left over in clothing. This is particularly true of underwear including boxers, briefs, socks and t-shirts.

I will commonly experience an extra itchy feeling if all of the soap is not removed from these articles of clothing.

In order to insure this, I usually run the load through the washer one or more additional times without soap after the first cycle. All cycles are run with any “extra rinse” portion of the cycle selected. The number of extra times that it is necessary to run the clothing through without soap depends greatly upon the type of soap, the amount of soap, and the hardness of the water.

The most that I have ever needed to do was four extra cycles (i.e. each complete with wash, rinse, rinse) after the one with soap. This was in a location that had very soft water. [Soft water does not remove soap as well as hard water.] In that location, 3 cycles was not sufficient.

Have you recently added a water softener? Changed locations? Different washer? etc.?

I have moved and changed locations, but my rash/dry skin/itchiness existed prior to moving. I’ve actually had it for awhile now, but nothing seems to work. I’ve tried using ant-itch creams, and different anti-fungal creams, and I’ve gone a few weeks forcing myself not to itch, but it still remains that red/pink color, and is dry and itchy even with the cream on. My GF does have a really bad itch too, worse than mine.so I know I gave it to her, or her to me.but we both have it now.

I’ve made an official appointment with my doctor, and I will be seeing him in the next week. If he doesn’t refer me to a dermatologist this time, I’m getting a new doctor.because giving someone medicine to ignore the problem isn’t fixing the problem.

I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I have a seriously bad fungus infection that can only be cleared up through oral medication.. But we’ll see what the *good* doctor has to say on that.

Here’s the link to what I’ve been reading.

Thanks for the replies, I’ll let you guys know my results and what happens.

Maybe your GF should see her doc to see what he/she recommends.

Sounds like a yeast infection combined with heat rash. Two things. Go get some female cream and apply it liberally. The other need, once it is reduced to small patches is anti-fungal cream or spray. Whether you buy it with a jock itch label or foot spray label it’s the same stuff. Walmarts, equate is good and inexpensive. Keep applying the cream two to three times a day for two weeks or longer if needed. Do not stop applying it unless the rash gets noticible worse then swithc brands. Also go to the health food store and get some acidopholis. Take a couple of table spoons per day. It taste’s like soured milk but it reduces the yeast in your system without drugs. (Do not ad sugar for a better taste.) Do not apply over the counter lotions or hand creams. To many chemicals and stuff in them will only iritate it more. Temporary reduce the intake of simple carbohydrates until it clears up. (Processed white or wheat breads, white rices, pre-sweetened cereals.)
